  1. The most important things is 1) to be aware of where the light comes from and 2) read yourself up on composition.
    The camera will take care of the technicalities of you go Auto.
    Enjoy!

  2. Forget auto, learn the relationship between aperture and shutter, make mistakes, learn from them, enjoy taking images, don't get bogged down with the kit.

  3. I started off with my dad's hand-crank-your-film Pentax to learn about photography. I knew everything on how to use shutter/apature on that old girl. However, my recent Nikon D40 turned me into a complete idiot. RTFM is what I'm telling myself. Hahah!

    But like what Geir said, the digital SLR is taking care of a lot of stuff and you can still get pretty decent pictures. (I'm on flickr too if you want to follow me…find me on Matt's contact list.)

  4. Oh and to add, Daniel, I agree. One should learn the basics. I am going to eventually hit the manual and learn to properly use my Nikon D40. I LOVED my Pentax until the film compartment back door part kept popping open on her own. Was very close to just put gaffer's tape over that. Eventually I will have to take her to get fixed. As much as I love digital, there are still the thrills from waiting to see what developed out of the negatives. :)

  5. Dan: Using auto and try to understand why the camera picks the settings it does is a very good first stop for understanding shutter/aperture. I teach this to students, and it works!
